‘Timeworn’ – Bristlecone Pine Forest, California by Gavin Hardcastle – Fototripper By all accounts this tree has been dead around 500 years and it’s estimated to have lived just under 4000 years. Making it possibly the oldest tree on earth.
All I know is it was a real pleasure to make it’s acquaintance.
This is a composite of two images that I shot specifically for this composition. The Milky Way image is a zoom shot that I processed using ‘Gavins Milky Way Lightroom Presets’ (http://ift.tt/1NCk9FG…) and the tree shot was made during sunset for that soft light on the front of the tree.
Both exposures were shot with the Sony A7R and the Canon 16-35mm lens.
Enjoy and please share if you like it.
